Man Utd fans spotted fighting with each other after defeat at Nottingham Forest

Man Utd fans spotted fighting with each other in the away end after suffering a late 2-1 defeat at Nottingham Forest.

Footage has surfaced showing a group of men going at it, throwing fists for a few seconds before the situation quickly calms down.

It seems there was more fight from Man Utd fans in the stands than there was from their players on the pitch. Take a look at the clip below…

After Manchester United’s defeat at Nottingham Forest, Gary Neville once again slammed the club’s recent recruitment under Erik ten Hag.

The former footballer turned pundit said: “Manchester United are back to what they are – inconsistent and awful.

“They walk off the pitch a defeated bunch. United fans behind the goal will go off so disappointed.

“But let’s not forget about Nottingham Forest who have been absolutely wonderful. They were the better team all game. They’ve lost their manager recently who has been brilliant for them the last two years, but they’ve made an immediate response with two huge victories.

“But Manchester United are back to their worst.

“They’re a weird team this Man Utd one. It’s almost as if at 0-0, they think they can play at a snail’s pace and then when they concede a goal – ‘oh we better get going here, let get’s a move on’. They don’t anticipate danger at all.

“At half-time, the lads were talking about the belief. Nottingham Forest can half work out how bad this Manchester United team are. It’s so poor from United, especially considering how good they were at Villa, it was exhilarating. They’re a yo-yo team.”

9 – Manchester United have lost as many as nine of their first 20 league games in a season for the first time since 1989-90; it’s as many defeats as they suffered in the whole of 2022-23.

21 – Manchester United have lost 21 games in all competitions in 2023 – only in 1930 (28), 1972 (25) and 1921 (24) have they ever lost more in a calendar year.

The result means Nottingham Forest secured their first Premier League win against Man Utd since 1994 while it was also Forest’s first win against Man Utd in all competitions in their last 12 attempts.

Gary Neville continued: “They weren’t keen on talking about it as a turning point because they don’t trust themselves.

“All the talk the other night was how much these players are playing for Erik ten Hag. What does this prove after we’ve seen so far in 50 minutes? That they’re not playing for him?

“This almost has nothing to do with Erik ten Hag. From 45 minutes to 45 minutes, they’ve gone from the sublime to the ridiculous. And now it’s the ridiculous.

“I’m not really sure what this Manchester United team is. It’s a very difficult watch. I think everyone accepted that Erik ten Hag did a very good job in his first season.

“With the new ownership, Sir Dave Brailsford’s going to be on a watching brief, week in, week out now. We’re going to see him appear there in the directors’ box.

“He’s going to look at what this club is, on and off the pitch. What he’s seeing at this moment in time he isn’t going to like, along with all the fans behind the goal who travelled to Nottingham today.

“Ten Hag needs his players back – [Lisandro] Martinez, [Harry] Maguire, Casemiro, [Rasmus] Hojlund, Luke Shaw… and he needs to somehow finish the season strongly.

“But it’s been a really up-and-down season. It’s more down than up. Some of these performances are really, really poor. Well below anything that should be required at this level.

“Erik ten Hag will be under pressure, there’s no doubt about that. They’re obviously going to appoint those three roles – CEO, sporting director and head of recruitment – they’ll all come in and the rest of them will go.

“The coach is the one that will be their biggest deliberation, it always is in a football club, because you don’t sack a coach easily.”
